For Londoners and visitors looking to enhance their experience of the city, and for those curious about mindfulness, this is your essential guide. It features quiet and peaceful places to retreat to in the middle of the chaos, from the silence and sanctuary of libraries, museums and churches to the rejuvenating influence of nature found in London’s myriad green spaces and waterways.
